The Minnesota Safe Routes to School Coalition has been busy testifying around the state for active transportation funding!
Jodi Gertken gave a great testimony at the Sen. Transportation & Public Safety Cmte hearing in St. Cloud, Minnesota about why CentraCare Health System supports the Move MN transportation funding proposal and why resources to support safe walking and biking options should be part of the transportation funding solution.
Center for Prevention director Janelle Waldock testified at a Senate Transportation hearing in Woodbury on the importance of including bike and pedestrian options as part of a comprehensive state plan for all Minnesota’s transportation needs.
Bike/ped advocates Jodi Gertken (Left) and Dr. Dave Sanderson (Right) from Greater MN testified alongside bill author Sen. Pederson (Center) today at the Sen. Transportation & Public Safety Cmte hearing on SF1376 which would establish a statewide active transportation program to support bicycle, pedestrian and other nonmotorized transportation activities in MN.
Thanks to Rep. Nornes for meeting with SRTS and bike/ped advocates in Fergus Falls to hear why walking and bicycling is a critical component to the transportation funding discussion at the Capitol.
